With an attacking game, both the teams put constant pressure on each other throughout the match. The first half was filled with attacks and counter attacks but both the teams failed to convert some good opportunities into a lead.

In the second half of the match, both the teams continued their attacking game but were not able to score any goal. However, United Sikkim FC stopper, SonamZangpo, scored the winning goal for the team in the dying minutes of the match.
